H.E.A.T - S/T (2009)

So H.E.A.T have re-released their overrated S/T album a year after it's initial release, all because they got some press attention through their Eurovision Song Contest Entry. The re-release contains a bonus CD with the only new song being their Euro-entry tune (this re-release also contains a karaoke version of the same song!).

 

Find it here....

Granted it's a halfway decent song IMHO, & a nice indication they could finally be ready to live up to the hype and release a consistent 2nd disc. But if you don't want to waste your money then you could always buy the single....

Well, I want to get in early. If any of your guys are going to get this one and plan to get rid of the debut, please consider me. :) This is still high atop my most wanted list.

Sorry mate, but I will be as likely to buy this disc as I would be to buy a 'Bon Jovi re-record all the Country Music Classics' album.

C'mon man! I have that album and it's great! Their version of Fair Warning's 'Heart of summer' is stunning. ;)

It's not that I don't like it, it's just there wasn't enough quality control when the final tracks were decided. Too many songs I have to skip through. Knowing that they can write great songs like "Follow Me" and "Bring the Stars" makes me wonder why they can't write an entire album like that.... If they do on the 2nd album then I'll be the first one to jump up & down in excitement though!

What and 'Straight For The Heart', 'Never Let Go', 'Keep On Dreamin' are no good then?? Awesome songs for me?? On reflection I think I prefer HEAT s/t to the 2nd BF.

 

Seeing HEAT on Mar 18th in London - well looking forward to it as well!

No, I'm not having that. H.E.A.T is not bad, but it's nowhere near the 2nd BFT album IMO, nor the killer new PLACE VENDOME. Both kick dirt in their face. In fact I'd take the weakest song on the PLACE VENDOME (probably "Set Me Free") over the best song on the H.E.A.T ("Follow Me").

 

P.s. Whereabouts they playing on the 18th?

I agree the BF and new Place Vendome blowing away the HEAT cd, although I do like it quite a bit. But the track "Follow Me" kicks the shit out of pretty much everything on the new Place Vendome. Of my fav tunes of 2008, it finished in 2nd, right behind "Wildest Dreams" from BF, which is probably my favorite song of the decade.

I agree with your song choices there Dave, "Wildest Dreams" and "Follow Me" are right up there for me too. But I actually like "A Scene In Replay" better than both....

So many WTFs, all addressed in one post:

 

1. Glen, you like 'Changes' best of the new Place Vendome disc???!!! Wow man, that was BY FAR one of, if not the 2nd weakest song for me, after 'Believer'. 'A scene in replay' is absolutely STUNNING.

 

2. 'Follow me' is not that good, guys!!! :lol: I love the HEAT album and I like that song, but imo it was, if I recall correctly, below halfway for me. They wrote sooo many better songs that that, imo. :)

 

3. I prefer HEAT's album to both Brother Firetribe discs, even though I love all three albums. I think the Place Vendome disc is the best of the four. In dealing with four awesome discs I'd rank them:

 

1. Place Vendome - Streets of fire

2. HEAT - s/t

3. Brother Firetribe - debut

4. Brother Firetribe - 2nd disc

 

I have spoken. ;)

...........see you do agree with me :nyanya:

 

The biggest WTF statement in this entire thread is 'Heat for a tenner' :tumbsup:

And I stand by that quote. But 'Believer', which is the weakest song on the CD is great too. It's all great. But track by track, that was still the 2nd weakest for me, I think, and there are heaps better... imo. :)

 

Yeah, HEAT for 10 pounds if off the f*cking charts. Any Brit who lives within 200km and does not go deserves to be shot.

I think youd better re-listen to it mate. 'Changes' is an awesome tune. Great melody, perfect chorus.

 

& the 2nd half of the disc is much much stronger than the first half IMO. In fact I would class 'Set Me Free' as borderline filler.

Trying to find a "filler" on the new Place Vendome is one tough task. Good luck boys, because I think they are all great tunes.

Yeah, there's no fillers. From the moment I put the album on, 'Believer' was by far the weakest track for me, with that homosexual jump for joy 'YAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!! Let's be poofters!' chorus, but the rest of the song kicks ass so it's not a filler. 'Changes' is fine but by far one of the more laid back and unspectacular choruses on a disc full of really HUGE choruses.

BTW, has anyone heard H.E.A.T's new song "1,000 Miles"? Bizarrely it's more stripped-down than the stuff on their debut disc (considering Eurovision Song Contest entries are usually way OTT), & it's very reminiscent of a Europe song - though without Tempest's great vocals - but it's not bad IMO. That said, 3 or 4 spins and I was completely done with hearing it....

Heard it.....good song.

 

Let's hope they can keep up this standard for the second album.

    • In case anyone might have forgotten what a fucken dump Australia is right now, in a country that was ravaged by bushfires two years ago, volunteer firefighters are now required to be vaccinated to be able to provide their service. Many will not, so in an occupation where we were flying in firefighters from the US and Canada etc. at the peak of our issues to help out, we are standing volunteers down because they won't get vaccinated. Because christ almighty knows, that the last thing we want is for firefighters to be giving the fires they fight covid-19.  https://thewest.com.au/news/coronavirus/volunteer-fire-and-rescue-service-members-included-in-mandatory-vaccination-mandate-c-4564212 That story only covers WA, but I saw an interview today with a guy from NSW and as far as I understand it's a country-wide requirement?  I honestly just don't have the words to describe my thoughts on matters like this. Are we actually the dumbest fucking country on planet earth, or is shit like this happening in other countries?  Imagine honestly trying to excuse actions like this if we had fires like we did a couple of years ago and able-bodied, willing and experienced firefighters were sitting at home watching houses burn on TV because their stupid fucking cunt government thought that forcing a pointless needle into their arm was more important than the work these people do. Unbe-fucking-lievable.  
    • Here's my ability to read and interpret information. You say that you no longer teach your kids to respect police. You seem open in your statement "Fuck the pigs" You may say that in front of them. If you don't I'm sure they will pick up on it. Kids learn from their parents. I'm happy with my interpretation. It's sad that people can generalise so vigorously. I would put forward that a MASSIVE percentage of cops are good, if not great cops. we're looking at only a very few cops here who overstep and gain a lot of press. I know 3 people who have applied for the force. One got in, one didn't, one is in the process now. Their requirements are extremely high, and not adhering to just one part of the process 100% equals a fail. In the case of the person who didn't get in, she got through all the psych, fitness, etc, but didn't come across as confident enough in a phone interview, so that was it. Cops are legends.

    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.

    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
